After visiting many amazing blogs during Magaly's All Hallow's Grimm celebration, I felt inspired to write a poem and art it...
"Stranded" 8x10 board with layered tissue/acrylic paint and air dry clay figure(made with Sculpey mould)
SONG OF THE SEA
Beware the sweetly singing voice
That calls you from the deep.
Into your head, your heart, your soul
The poisoned words will creep.
They'll welcome you
And promise love,
To keep you safe from strife.
Yet their claws are sharper when rebuked
Than the gleaming Butcher's knife.
Beware the pretty lights that shine
Within their eyes so clear.
The pearly teeth that glisten bright
As they smile from ear to ear.
Please be careful when you walk
On warm sandy shores alone.
For the Siren's song, though sweetly sung,
Can cut you to the bone.
But I fear not the Siren's call
As the stormy waves crash by,
For when Nature takes my hand to guide,
I stand 'neath clearer sky.
My eyes are opened to the light
That shines from other hearts.
The Siren's spell is laid to waste
And darkness soon departs.
Grief I have missed the power of words, and the shimmery iridescence of the ocean.
Enjoy :D XXX
